Lilla P

Origami Top

Tops that Twist, Tie, and Wrap

Sophisticated, but also casual. Flattering yet comfortable. Unstructured when you want to be loose, tailored when you’re aiming for a more refined look.

What if one article of clothing could meet all those criteria? The Origami top is all that and more. Created by Pauline Nakios, founder of the Lilla P collection, the Origami top is incredibly versatile. Depending on how it’s worn, it’s a cardigan, a wrap top, a halter or a tunic. It’s made from whisper-soft Peruvian pima cotton, which is lightweight enough to be
twisted, tied and draped into more than a dozen different configurations without feeling bunched up or bulky.

Pauline has a knack for capturing just what the modern woman wants—luxurious clothes that fit a casual lifestyle. The Origami top can transition from day to night with just a few adjustments, and it’s equally successful as a yoga cover-up or a cocktail-ready halter (the versatility makes it a perfect traveling piece). It’s the ultimate wardrobe staple that’s never boring, always game for change.

    Wow! the possibilities are endless. Love it. Just a question, I am 5'1, will this be too long for me ? The model in the video is tall and she's tying it around in just one wrap & it looks great on her. But a short person can't just do away with a single wrap, isn't it ?

    We had a colleague in our office who is 5'2 and wears a size 2 try on the Origami top for fit. The arms were a little looser on her, but she was happy with the way it wrapped around her.

    I received an origami top as a gift 2 years ago and love it but it did not come with instruciton so i only wear it ties behind me which can be bulky. I would like to do some of the other designs shown so that I could get more wear out of it.

    thanks! I love mine!

    Hi Roni,

    Lilla P is a one size fits all and as long as you are happy with a longer cardigan, it should wear well on all sizes.

    @ Roni Our full figured tester said that the coverage is good, the fabric is quite stretchy and soft, and the fitted sleeves are surprisingly comfortable. (That is the only place it is fitted.) Her "sensitive" area is around the middle and she would not use all the different wrap ideas in the couple of cases where they attracted too much attention to that area. She wanted to keep it, if that helps. 5'6" person.

    The sleeves are quite long. Fine for 5'8" and a shorter person would simply scrunch them up a bit.

    Would this be suitable for a person who is 5'8 and wears plus size clothing?

    Lilla P. recommends this is an ideal fit for sizes 2 to 12. Having said that, we've had women outside this range who've been comfortable with the fit.
